Moonrise, Mamaronek, 1094 Edward Steichen
Winter is officially here. For the past two weeks it has been gray and dark and still. We had a little bit of sun yesterday, but not nearly enough for us Coloradans, who proclaim proudly to anyone who will listen that we usually get over three hundred days of sunshine a year. These few weeks, the darkest of the year, seem to offer me a time for slowing down. This time of year is for sleeping late, and sometimes even getting back into bed during the day, cooking warm and hearty food, listening to beautiful Christmas music, and staying in. So I'm deciding to not fight the hibernation, but to relish it. Because, as with most things we learn to enjoy, it will all be over before we know it.
